Much as I appreciate Joe Harris' attempts to bring back beloved characters who perished in the course of the TV show (i.e. Cancer Man, the Lone Gunmen), I'm more bothered that Chris Carter, who lent a contributing hand to these comics, would allow The X-Files to take on the same nihilistic practices so often found in superhero comics and video games. Bringing classic characters back from the dead not only subverts the drama of their deaths but also weakens the impact of any future character deaths because anyone who follows the series knows they'll just be resurrected at a later time. Nevertheless, Season 10 makes clear bids toward legitimacy and relevance with its opening myth-arc, of an ascendant cabal bent on hastening the alien re-population of Earth, and Harris seems bent on assuring readers that this isn't a disposable media tie-in.
The mismatched art styles and varied depictions of Mulder, Scully, and other classic X-Files characters are somewhat jarring, though not as problematic as it is in Volume 2 or the stultifyingly awful one-shot, The X-Files: Conspiracy. If you're looking for better comic stories featuring Agents Mulder and Scully, I strongly recommend the Topps Comics adaptations from the mid-1990s (which is now being reprinted under The X-Files: Classics; the artwork found in those issues is both superior and consistent.
This copy also doesn't have the usual viewing problems I get with digital comics I buy on amazon. I have a fire hdx, and almost all the comics I have won't display the double page spreads when you turn it on landscape mode. This makes some panels unreadable because the panels are too small. This book doesn't have problems because it doesn't have have double page spreads.
So, you have a free hour and enough money to buy this comic. Should you? If you're a fan of The X Files, you should. If you watched all nine seasons of The X Files, you definitely should. This takes you in a new direction, and if you read it, you'll be buying more issues. There is a tendency in media tie-in comic books to put everything possible in. You see the Lone Gunmen, the Cigarette Smoking Man, a new breed of aliens (?), and of course Mulder and Skully. That's a given, but what I was blown away by in this comic is how true it stays to the vision of the original series. I'm hooked. ****1/2
